« Ms. Martin was my English teacher and was by far my favorite class. She made English so enjoyable and it was an effective class! For the longest time, English was my weak subject and I dreaded writing essays, but with the help of Ms. Martin, I was able to become a better writer! Very engaging in class and made me LOVE reading! We read about 16-17 books and I can't remember one ever being boring. We would discuss the chapters we had to read the next day in class. One of my favorite books was The Count of Monte Cristo written by Alexandre Dumas. MS. MARTIN IS WONDERFUL! Pick her, you will not regret it! »

English teacher extraordinaire with 27 years of academic experience including: online language teaching, English-Junior high, Honors English 9, 10, 11,12, AP English Language, British Lit, French Lit

Methodology

It depends on the situation. If a student is a beginner or is struggling, of course I would scaffold and make sure the student has all of information necessary not only to move forward, but to move upward! The more advanced a student is the faster we can move and the deeper we can to into a subject, but if there is one thing i have - a HUGE abundance of it's PATIENCE. I find that students cannot learn from an impatient teacher.

Background

I retired from classroom teaching after twenty-five years, and I am now a Professional Hypnotherapist and I taught English online for a year. Just can't seem to stop. I would love any academic tutoring in the liberal arts. I am not a science or math teacher.

Michelle was my HS English teacher without her class I would have never been able to improve my skills to get me into an Ivy League school. Forever thankful she’s undoubtedly one of the most intelligent, dedicated and passionate professors I’ve ever had.

Shows a tremendous amount of patience with children. Also adopts to each and every child, since no two kids are alike she modifies her teaching per child which better suits their learning development.
